“Investing in education is the most important investment for the future of our country,” main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said in a post on Twitter on Wednesday, welcoming students to schools and wishing them a “good and creative school year.”
“Today is another new beginning. Thousands of students meet again in courtyards and classrooms. Others, the younger ones, anxiously started their first day at school. Alongside them are the parents, all of us, but also the teachers,” Tsipras noted.
“I want to wish all the students and the educational community a good and creative school year. The quality of education provided is a key element of progress and social justice. The road we have laid out since 2015 has borne fruit,” he stressed.
“Our vision is to provide everyone with access to modern, quality public education. We are called upon to defend this right today. Because investing in education is the most important investment for the future of our country,” Tsipras said.
